Important news….

The Craven-Pamlico-Carteret Regional Library (CPCRL) has received a grant of $100,000 to migrate to “Library.Solution”, a public library automation system.  The grant is provided by the Institute of Museum and Library Services, under the provisions of the federal Library Services and Technology Act (LSTA) as administered by the State Library of North Carolina, a division of the Department of Natural and Cultural Resources.

The migration to “Library.Solution” will involve closures at the 10 affiliated libraries:

Friday, September 30th – Last day to check out materials on the current system.

Saturday, October 1st – All the libraries open regular hours but without system for checking materials in or out, issuing new library cards, or reviewing patrons’ accounts.  Public Internet access will be available.

Sunday, October 2nd through Sunday, October 9th – all libraries closed for staff training.

Monday, October 10th – All libraries open their regular hours with “Library.Solution” software in place.

Thank you in advance for your patience during this transitional time.

September

september-clip-art-2

The month of September is here.  It always takes me by surprise because the weather still makes me feel that it is still summer.

The children are all back in school and settled into a routine.  We have football and soccer games on the calendar.  All the current magazines have wonderful fall recipes; apples are in abundance as well as pumpkin in the ingredients.  We start thinking of tailgate refreshments, chilies and soups instead of salads and cold entrees.

September is a transitional month. Saying goodbye to summer and hello to autumn. Even though I have been here in Havelock for almost nine years, I still can not get into Autumn. The sun still shines bright; it is still pleasantly warm or stifling hot and humid.  I still want to sit at the beach. No matter whether I hang onto summer or welcome autumn with open arms, I always have a book with me.  Now is the time to treat yourself to some new arrivals at the library.

Relax and enjoy!

National POW/MIA Recognition Day in the United States

The United States’ National POW/MIA Recognition Day is observed across the nation on the third Friday of September each year. Many Americans take the time to remember those who were prisoners of war (POW) and those who are missing in action (MIA), as well as their families.

What Do People Do?

Many Americans across the United States pause to remember the sacrifices and service of those who were prisoners of war (POW), as well as those who are missing in action (MIA), and their families. All military installations fly the National League of Families’ POW/MIA flag, which symbolizes the nation’s remembrance of those who were imprisoned while serving in conflicts and those who remain missing.

Veteran rallies take place in many states, such as Wisconsin, in the United States on National POW/MIA Recognition Day. United States flags and POW/MIA flags are flown on this day and joint prayers are made for POWs and those missing in action. National POW/MIA Recognition Day posters are also displayed at college or university campuses and public buildings to promote the day. Remembrance ceremonies and other events to observe the day are also held in places such as the Pentagon, war memorials and museums.

Facebook Scam

Here is a reminder about safety when online:

When searching for Facebook using Google, a page will come up with search results.  Patrons should be advised not to click any search results that are marked as an “Ad”.  The real Facebook link is not marked as an “Ad”.  If patrons click on the link marked as an “Ad”, a fake warning page appears, usually with a popup window and blocks the user from clicking the back button or closing the browser.

To close the browser to get out of a faulty website, press CTRL + ALT + DEL on the keyboard.  Then click Task Manager. Click the browser name and then click End Task. Patrons can avoid these type of scams altogether by typing the exact URL into the address bar of the browser, which bypasses Google search results.
